Hallux Rigidus is the name for arthrosis in the metatarsophalangeal joint of the big toe. In this disease, the big toe hurts under stress and as the disease progresses, the big toe becomes stiff. This increasingly restricts the mobility of the affected patient and leads to a massive deterioration in quality of life.

The advantages of my private practice are that you do not have long waiting times, I can take enough time for you and appointments are usually available at short notice. causes. von Hallux Rigidus sind neben Altersverschleiß, Stoffwechselerkrankungen (Gicht), Übergewicht, Verletzungen und Fuß Fehlstellungen. 

Behandlung von Arthrose im Großzeh bei OA Priv. Doz. Dr. Reinhard Schuh

As a foot orthopaedic surgeon I would be happy to advise you on the appropriate therapy for Hallux Rigidus. In the early stages of osteoarthritis in the big toe, conservative, i.e. non-surgical methods are initially used. In addition to the supply of shoe insoles and physical therapy, a pain therapy will be initiated to treat the pain. If these methods do not lead to an improvement of the pain in the foot, a foot operation will be unavoidable. I have been successfully performing operations of the Hallux Rigidus for years and would be pleased to inform you in a personal conversation about the methods, risks and chances of a surgical intervention.
